4.0 out of 5 stars The thrill of the chase 7 Oct 2009
This six-part Dalek story from 1965 is notable mainly for being the last story to feature The Doctor's first Earthly companions, Ian and Barbara, the school teachers opting to use the Dalek's abandoned time machine to return home for good.
The serial itself is a pleasingly ramshackle affair, and provides plenty of memorable moments - as well as plenty of wobbly sets. Rubber bats and dodgy walls abound, as The Timelord and his companions play a game of cat and mouse with the insidious pepperpots. An android duplicate of The Doctor, a mechanical 'Frankenstein's monster', Peter Purves' hilarious American tourist, the brilliant Mechanoids, and risible carnivorous plants, are just some of the weird and wonderful highlights of this story.
Worth a look if you're a fan of the later stories and only know this from the TARGET paperback, but not one of the show's finest hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars A chase through time 15 Feb 2010
This very amusing Dr Who story has the doctor and his companions pursed through time and space by the Daleks, determined to destroy the Doctor. They begin when the Doctor makes a machine than can show them anything in history, even a Beatles concert "I didn't know the Beatles played classical music" exclaims Vicky, which naturally makes Barbara and Ian feel very old.

The chase takes them to a variety of different settings, including a planet with an aquatic race who have run out of water, the top of the empire State Buidling, and the Marie Celeste. finally we learn why the marie Celeste was abandoned - the crew all jumped overboard because they were scared by Daleks. Then they find themselves in a strange carnival setting, where they meet Frankenstein, Dracula, etc, and finally a jungle planet with large carnivorous plants. One plant very gamely tries to eat a Dalek, but is exterminated. It probably didn't have a tin opener anyway.

At the end of this story, ian and Barbara finally make it back to 1960s earth. I love the scene where they are on a bus, and Ian asks the conductor for two threepennies. "Threepennies" says the conductor incredulously "where have you been, on the Moon?" "No, but you're getting near" Ian replies cheerfully.

I think this is a highly enjoyable Dr Who adventure, I enjoyed every moment of it.
